The investigative findings were provided to the BC Prosecution Service, and on July 25 the BCPS approved one count of murder against 35 year old John Wendell Keyler for the murder of Sarah Foord. Keyler was arrested without incident in Fort St John and will make an appearance on Tuesday, July 28, 2020.

RCMP investigators continue to update Foord's family on the progress of the investigation and will continue to provide them support.

"I want to acknowledge all of the police investigators, staff and analysts who worked day and night on this investigation to find Sarah and secure a charge for her death" says Insp. Lorne Wood, North District Major Crime.

"Also on behalf of the investigative team I want to thank Sarah’s family, members of the public and local businesses who came forward with information to assist with the investigation into the disappearance of Sarah. Our priority now is to prepare for court process."
